That'd be nice for local multiplayer, but considering I'm mostly playing online I wouldn't make much use of it... just gotta hope that there aren't any really annoying items this time around.

@BenAV The Blue Shell, Bullet Bill, Lightning Bolt and Blooper have all been revealed (although the Blooper is only annoying because of how useless it is)

@SG9000 I'm actually okay with all of those being in there.
Blooper could afford to go, but it's not a big deal.

It's when you start adding in annoying items on top of those.
I'm fine with the Mario Kart 7 items, even if the tail can be a bit annoying, so if it's relatively similar to that I'd be happy enough.

@DestinyMan True, but how could they do it for online mode? All I can imagine is "Without Items" and "With Items"

Maybe with a 'vote' system?

Or like different modes? 'classic mode' ' Insane mode'

Double Dash, Wii, and 7 all had item options, though many never realized it. MK7 even allowed you to use these options online via Communities.

Come on, friends,

Insane mode is Classic mode.

I don't care if they have items in multiplayer because the only thing at stake is your ranking. But in single player? It's highly annoying when your ability to complete the game and unlock things based more on AI hax than actual racing skill.

It's not really about the AI in my opinion, it's really about how they handle the items. For once, I'd like it if the Bullet Bill didn't run out right before a jump, or for Red Shells to avoid hitting curves (walls & tight corners are acceptable), or for Blue Shells to not appear when some people are near the 1st place racer.

Issue is the way items are handled, not the AI. If there are 3 racers or more near the 1st place racer, the Blue Shell should not come as it disturbs the current play between the racers. If Nintendo could make the game analyze how many racers are near the 1st place racer, MK8 will be much more balanced (I guess).
The Blue Shells' goal is to slow down 1st place so others can catch up, not flip the tables on 1st place. That was the main purpose of it.

Also, funny video

Those seem to be more multiplayer issues. Again, I don't really care as much on multiplayer (particularly local when ranking doesn't matter), it's single player where it's an issue. Blue Shell doesn't really have much of a point in single player because it's a matter of outmatching the computer, having an equalizer item isn't really fair in that case.

@Bolt_Strike Well the only AI issue I tend to see is that they never target each other, only the player, which sucks.

Save £10 on Mario Kart 8 or Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition when bought with the Black Wii U Mario and Luigi Premium Pack in the same transaction at GAME.
Should be a good deal for those looking to buy a Wii U and Mario Kart 8. (UK ONLY)
I just thought I should post this.

Is it wrong to hope that there's a glitch that lets you go out of bounds and explore Sunshine Airport? Kinda like the Coconut Mall glitch. I just really wanna explore these tracks.

I hope this is true. I don't want Mario Kart 8 to be released just 3 days AFTER Watch Dogs.
If this is really true... then NINTENDO NEEDS TO START ADVERTISING LIKE CRAZY IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I also own a PS4!
